    Yep that was me...

    Had a great race on a bike we bought off Craig's list in San Diego a few days before the race start. Stone bone stock xr650r.

    Prep for the race -Put air in the (sketchy)tires, and filled the stock tank with fuel. I ran out of gas at least 3 times on course, and got hit by a car on the last day and ended up 2nd overall and 2nd for Modern Open bikes. It can be done.

    Great to see all the bike guys sticking together. That's what makes the event so fantastic. There is almost not a bad seed in the bunch.

    No Larry I cant swing it, I wish I could, honda is pending sale... I'm doing the Alcan 5000, and the store keeps me busy, I'll be back in Baja in Nov, on my DRZ, gonna go trail ride for a few days and then watch the start of the 1000. I've never been in Ensenada for SCORE so that will be new and cool.

    PRESS RELEASE HERE

    BAJA RALLY ADDS NEW CLASS FOR ADV EXPERTS
    BAJA RALLY OPENS “ADV EXPERT” CLASS
    ENSENADA BAJA CA MEXICO-Bajarallymoto.com officially announced today the addition of an “Adventure Bike” class to the 2014 BAJA RALLY 2.0 taking place here this September 24-28. The new “ADV EXPERT” class includes modified adventure bikes ranging from 700cc-1000cc and is generally targeted toward BMW F800GS and KTM 990. There is also a strict approval process that both riders and bikes must complete before being officially entered. Applicants simply email their resume and references and will be screened for racing experience, overall skills and must be pre-approved prior to being given a riding number.

    “The BAJA RALLY is no joke. It will be hard and safety is our top priority,” explained rally director Scotty Breauxman, “we have a subjective process for accepting riders into this new class and it was designed to include only the most qualified riders in the world. It’s not like any John Doe can just show up in Ensenada and enter the rally on a KTM 990. I think most riders would be overly challenged by the extra weight and I can’t see any advantage of riding a 990 over a 450 because the routes have some fairly technical sections.”

    The perfect example of the prime target for the ADV Expert class is Canadian racer Radek Burkat who became the first entrant to be accepted into this new elite class. The well rounded Burkat had a noble showing at the King Of The Motos, a Baja 1000 finish and plenty of big bike riding experience. He also completed professional rally navigation training earlier this season.

    “We’re particularly excited about expanding the field to include these big bikes and the expert riders,” Breauxman concludes, “This is an important group that keeps growing and getting more relevant. These are the same riders who will be following the stage routes as spectators of BAJA RALLY events several years from now.”

    The “ADV”, or “adventure touring” segment is the fastest growing of any sub-market in the North American motorcycle industry and powered by 40-60 year old males with mean annual incomes of $80,000+. More information at ADV Moto Magazine

    The BAJA RALLY is the first and only “road-book” navigation-based rally raid for motorcycles only In Baja CA, Mexico. Taking place over 5 days in Septemebr (24-28), the BAJA RALLY features 4 days of off-road rally motorcycle racing over 800 miles of timed special stages and non-timed transfer stages. Likened to a traveling, cultural human experience, the rapidly growing BAJA RALLY 2.0 is the closest thing to the Dakar Rally to take place in North America.
